hi all,

we would like to download and install the latest version 1.5.0 of
FirebirdSQL database onto ours Windows 2000 Pro machine, and got
confused on the various files available.
Can someone briefly explain the differences between

b) Since we are working on JavaServer Pages (JSP), we have a need for
a "good" JDBC driver. We've heard about JBird, but could not find it
under the firebird download area. Can someone describe what are these
other drivers:
b.1) firebird-jca-jdbc-driver
b.2) jdbc-InterClient -> we assume this is the Borland InterServer
InterClient driver, please confirm

c) We assume that under firebird-addons, the FbConfigManager for v1.5
is similar to the InterBase IBConsole, please confirm

d) What about firebird-benchmarks, is this used to simulate load and
test FireBirdSQL?

e) We are unsure the use of firebird-net-provider. Any comments?

Sorry for asking too many questions, but unless a summary document
exists explaining all these modules, it gets difficult for a new user
to download and start working efficiently.

We've been using InterBase V6.0 + InterClient and are extremely
happy. Our main project, and Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP)
system relies heavily on stored procedure. We would like to embark
with FireBirdSQL now.

Thanks in advance
